"It's New Year's Eve, the holiday of forced fellowship, mandatory fun, and paper hats. While dining out with her husband and their friends, [the] protagonist--an acerbic, mordantly witty, and clinically depressed writer--fully unravels. Her breakdown lands her in the psych ward of a prestigious New York hospital where she refuses all modes of recommended treatment. Instead, she passes the time chronicling the lives of her fellow "lunatics" and writing a novel about how she got to this place."--

An apt and humorous view into the life of an individual with mental health issues. The reader gets a take on Bunny's decent into hospital admission and the quirks of her behavior as well as the realistic but funny observations of life around her.

Bunny lives in total and complete depression. Alienated from the world she makes it all the way to a New Years Eve party where the inane chatter and banter drive her to thrust the tines of a fork into her thigh. Taken to a mental facility, Bunny attempts to grow out of her depression while battling living in her new environment. A mix of "Orange is the New Black" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," "Rabbits for Food" is witty, funny, and an easy read. You’ll understand deep depression like never before. However, like depression, you won’t find any easy answers.
